The Line: Indianapolis Colts -6 -- O/U: 53.5
The Indianapolis Colts and the Washington Redskins meet in a Madden 20 NFL simulation game on Sunday morning.
The Indianapolis Colts will try to rebound from back-to-back sim losses after a 30-25 loss to Tampa Bay last time out. T.Y. Hilton leads Indianapolis on offense with an 88 overall rating, with 93 speed as well as 95 agility and 91 acceleration. Indy also have some solid beef up front with four offensive linemen with at least an 80 overall rating, led by Quenton Nelson who has a team-high 94 overall rating with a 99 awareness rating as well as 97 strength and 92 run blocking. On the defensive end, Justin Houston leads the Colts at 86 overall, including a 93 mark in play recognition while Darius Leonard sits at one of the outside linebacker spots with an 85 overall rating including an 88 rating in tackling.
The Washington Redskins will look to build on wins in 3 of their last 4 games following a 19-13 win over Pittsburgh in their last game. Washington’s strength is their o-line, with Trent Williams leading with a 92 overall rating including 95 strength, 92 pass block and 93 run block while Brandon Scherff is 88 overall with 90 run blocking and 92 strength. Jordan Reed leads Washington as their top receiving threat at 84 overall with 87 catching and 87 catching in traffic while Terry McLaurin is at 81 overall and Derrius Guice heads the backfield at 80 overall, sharing the ball carrier work with Adrian Peterson who is at 79 overall. Dwayne Haskins Jr. is the starting QB for Washington despite being rated at just 70 overall. On defense, Matt Ioannidis leads the Washington’s D with an 85 overall rating with 86 acceleration and 86 strength to go along with 84 tackling and 89 power moves while Ryan Kerrigan is at 84 overall at outside linebacker with 88 power move, 88 impact blocking and 86 acceleration.
The Colts are the better team, but they’ve also had a couple of hiccups lately and in these sim games, anything can happen, so I’m not surprised to see Indy favored here. However, Washington’s had a nice little run lately and they’ve beaten some stiff competition in doing so. I’ll take a stab at Washington and the points in this one.
